A Vital Update on Your Hummus Life

You: Boy, I wish there were a new fast-casual Mediterranean place to make me a hummus bowl with slow-cooked beef and sriracha tahini for lunch.
Unidentified Voice: Try Tahaza Hummus Kitchen. It just opened by Lechmere.
You: Who are you?
Unidentified Voice: Shhhh.

There’s a Pity Party and You’re Invited
PITY THE FOOL

There’s a Pity Party and You’re Invited

This is new. There’s an actual “Pity Party” being thrown by the Somerville Arts Council with sad live music, depressing comedians, melancholy poetry, Drabby the Sad Clown and ice cream from Gracie’s. Regular ice cream, not sad ice cream.

Friday
Scorpion Bowls and a Pig Roast
ROSE AND CONS

Scorpion Bowls and a Pig Roast

Rosebud just turned one. And to celebrate, they’re inviting you to a laser tag birthday party. Kidding. It’ll be a luau-themed patio party with live surf rock, scorpion bowls and a pig roast with sticky spare ribs and pork pot stickers. It’s an intense first-birthday party.

Much Led Zeppelin. Little Clothing.
ZEP RALLY

Much Led Zeppelin. Little Clothing.

Seeing Led Zeppelin live would be the best thing. Watching dancers remove their clothing to the sounds of Led Zeppelin is the second-best thing. And that’s precisely what’s happening at Oberon tomorrow night. As far as second-best things go: not bad. Not bad at all.

Saturday
There’s Gin and Reggae Here
IT TAKES A VILLAGE

There’s Gin and Reggae Here

This Saturday, the city of Everett is closing down the streets between Night Shift Brewing and Short Path Distillery for a little Village Fest. There will be 11 food trucks. There will be live reggae music from the Wailers. There will be beer and gin. The city of Everett cares.

Sep 19, 3-9pm, no cover, Village Fest, Santilli Highway, Everett
